Release Notes 2.0.2
Confluence 2.0.2 is a maintenance release that resolves a security issue, along with various issues users may have encountered using Confluence 2.0.1.
A security flaw as described by the Confluence Security Advisory 2005-12-05 has been identified to exist in Confluence 1.4.x and 2.0.x. This has been fixed in 2.0.2. We recommend to all customers that they either upgrade to 2.0.2 or follow the instructions provided on the Confluence Security Advisory 2005-12-05 to patch there installation.
The release of Firefox 1.5 resulted in new bugs and issues with the Rich Text editor. Therefore every version of Confluence up to 2.0.2 isn't very compatible with this browser in terms of Rich Text editing.
Confluence 2.0.3 will feature an updated version of the editor which will solve most of the problems with Firefox 1.5 (Release Notes 2.0.2).
2.0.2 is a free upgrade for all customers who purchased their Confluence license after December 5th, 2004.
